It’s the age old debate taking place in households across the UK, when is it time to put the Christmas tree up and kick off the festive season?

Usually the first weekend of December sees millions of households get up in their lofts or out to the shed to dust off their decorations, however, some prefer to wait a week until getting in the Christmas mood.

For homes looking for a real tree this year, experts advise getting one no earlier than the 1st December to ensure it lasts all through the month.

However, with all the festivities Brits are at risk of ending up in A&E this December with the NHS estimating that 350 people are injured each year putting up lights, while a further 1,000 decorating indoors when relying on chairs and tables rather than ladders.

Here’s our guide to the best ladders for turning your home safely into a grotto this Christmas without the risk of injury:
